MuskokaTech Releases PathAway GPS 5 for Android Smartphones and Tablets

Long-time leading GPS mobile software now available on the Android Platform.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, January 23, 2012 -- MuskokaTech; a leading provider of GPS Navigation, Tracking, and mapping software for mobile devices, have announced the release of PathAway GPS 5 for Android Smartphones and Tablets. Since 2000 PathAway has been a productive GPS tool on multiple mobile platforms and has now most recently been delivered on the Android platform.

PathAway is an all-purpose moving map GPS software application for off-road recreational and professional use. Key features of PathAway include the ability to download online maps of different types and sources and cache them offline for use when no wireless data connectivity is available. In addition, users can create customized navigational maps via PathAway tools or 3rd party sources. Other features include features to perform extensive GPS track logging and point capture; navigate using multi-point routing via user created routes, or recorded tracks; and view a host of navigational information on a customizable dashboard. PathAway can import and export between the standard GPS data formats such as GPX, KML, KMZ, LOC, and CSV.

"Android is the ideal platform for PathAway." states MuskokaTech CEO, Scott Northmore. "When PathAway was designed 12 years ago it was our vision that these devices would become what they are today. Large screens, embedded GPS, powerful processors, and an extensive amunt of memory, means they are ideally suited to a powerful app such as PathAway. Now in it's 5th generatation from the original release, PathAway is a mature product, with powerful underlying core technology, driven by user feedback and real-world usage."
